In Flanders Fields Museum

100 years ago, the Ypres region was the backdrop to one of the bloodiest battles in history. Now the last witnesses have died too, the In Flanders Fields Museum is more than ever the gateway to the First World War in Flanders .

The In Flanders Fields Museum faces the visitor with the consequences of the Great War. It confronts young and old with life and death in the Ypres front region.

The exhibition with poignant video projections, unique sound bytes and state-of-the-art multimedia applications immerse you in the front life.  Each visitor is also given a poppy bracelet which enables him/her to discover four personal stories of 'ordinary Joes' in the Great War. By logging in you get in touch with your peers in the war a century ago.

  • 1917 Total War in Flanders - 03/06/2017 - 31/12/2017

The War in Writing comprises hundred of unique testimonies of four years of war on the front in Flanders, points out the enduring relationship between the texts of the past and the contemporary landscape of the front and warns, in the words of the generation of the First World War, against every instance of new threat of war.

On the one hand, this temporary exhibition provides a general introduction to the Battle of Messines and Third Battle of Ypres and also in the 1917 exhibition series #Total War in Flanders which will take place across seven sites in Flanders. On the other hand the In Flanders Fields Museum delves into the imagination of a war that defied all imagination. Never more potently so than in the pictures of #Australian photographer #Frank Hurley and his colleague #Hubert Wilkins.
